Paul R. Wyrwoll Consulting Services

I am an environmental and resources economist at the Australian National University providing independent consulting services in various areas of water management. As an academic researcher, I am able to provide water policy analysis and undertake hydro-economic modelling to inform real-world decision-making. My five years working in the water sector in the Mekong region has demonstrated the capacity to work with national government agencies and non-government organisations in developing countries. As a former Managing Editor of a leading online water knowledge platform, I have demonstrated the capacity to synthesise academic research for broad audiences and across multiple disciplines.
